My apartment totally met my expectations. I think it is accurately priced for what you get. Perfect for a business trip in Mount Maunganui. But just one small detail wasn't quite right: the mugs are tiny. I'm probably not alone in wanting a good sized cup of tea when I wake up.

Great hotel, unsure why it is under B&B, should be moved to hotels. Fantastic location, you get a great view of the mount and it is a 2 min walk away. The hotel rooms are furnished nicely and the bed is uber comfy. Would definitely stay here again.

Fabulous apartment, and excellent staff, we had Ceara and she was a true professional, would highly recommend a stay here. The beach is practically across the road and a short walk into town to some lovely restaurants and bars, the hot pools are across the road. Even though the cafe downstairs was closed ( I think this must be seasonal... More

Only stayed one night. Occupied a first floor one bedroom unit. Great location and very close to the beach (no sea views though), restaurants, bars, shops. Very clean, spacious and comfortable. If you arrive outside of reception hours your keys are left in a security box at the back of the building and you need to let yourself in. I'd... More

Excellent location - winter or summer. Nicely appointed and furnished. Warm and cosy in winter. We had a one bedroom unit on floor 2 (202). Needs some maintenance - shower door not closing, bedroomed door difficult to close, shower handle falls off but these are minor. Would stay here again. Great cafe's and walks.

We had a lovely unit on the 4th Floor, we were with others who were put on the 5th floor and 7th floor. We could not get to each others room because your key only allowed you to get to your floor and reception. The internal phone system wasn't working so we couldn't contact them by that. It was disappointing.... More

The apartment and facilities at the Pacific are appealing - comfortable beds, good quality linen, quiet at night, spacious living areas and decks, nice bathrooms (although our shower flooded the bathroom floor each time, and the toilet needed some maintenance - it was noisy a lot of the time), pleasant pool and spa area, convenient parking and good gym.

Room wasn't ready at check in time which was annoying because we had to wait. This apartment was lovely with modern furnishings and very clean. It was handy having laundry and a full kitchen with fridge, the pool looked nice but didn't get to use it as we were on the beach most of the time. It was very handy... More

Our one bedroom apartment was huge, with a lovely balcony overlooking the Mount and with sea views. Apartment equipped with everything you could need (including a few board games in case of a rainy day). Short walk to the Main Mount Street. 2 mins from beach and hot pools. Would definitely recommend staying here.
